System Of A Down’s Serj Tankian Debuts “Electric Yerevan” Video


System Of A Down frontman Serj Tankian‘s music video for his new solo single “Electric Yerevan” has premiered online. The video was directed by Garin Hovannisian and premieres alongside alongside the release of Tankian‘s new solo EP, “Elasticity“. Tankian commented:

“The song was inspired by the successful Electric Yerevan protests in Armenia in the summer of 2015 where people protested against proposed hikes in utility prices. My writing from that time is inscribed word for word in the song.”

Elasticity” features several song ideas which Tankian had originally penned with System Of A Down in mind during what wound up being the band’s failed attempt at making a new full-length album several years back. While “Elasticity” is just now seeing a release, Tankian already has another EP and two albums worth of cinematic music, as well as a 24-minute modern piano concerto in the works.
